I have a old small cam Cummins which are known for wiping out the camshaft lobe‘s. I put 4gallons of T6 and 4 gals Delco 15 W 40 then put in two bottle two bottles of Liquid Moly and two bottles of the ZDDP plus Additive


Do you think that should be good to cover the camshaft from getting wiped out even with the low amount of bottles and large amount of oil?

It will defienitely be noticeable if you have it analyzed, but normally they recommend 1 bottle for up to 5 liters, so it may be weak.

It won't help. That Cummins has roller cam followers. They wear down when fuel pressure is turned up by changing the button in the pump.

Won't be a problem @ normal hp ratings.

What hp is yours?

Most held 12 gallons with both filters replaced.

Yup. In std tune they are reliable. But, of course, every concrete cowboy out there turned them up ...

I’m pretty sure it’s a stock 400hp small cam from what I told.

I thought they had flat tappit cam followers . It might have put closer to 10 gals cause I did have to top it off a few times. .

I could only find one oil filter on engine and one aftermarket luberfiner 750 filter
